“Handy Pousada for Coimbra”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

The staff here were very good. The guy who did the bar/ waiting tables was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was accurate and professionally served.

The food too was very good. The monkfish medallions, cod, the desserts all tasty and well presented (generally Pousadas are WAY better food than Paradors!).

The receptionist gave us a handy map with annotations to park in Coimbra which is about 10 minutes away.

Rooms were spotlessly clean with a balcony overlooking the lawn and pool.

We chose to stay at this Pousada as it allowed easy access to the Conimbriga Roman Ruins and was 14 km from Coimbra.
PROS: Recently renovated, our superior room was great and not at all as previously described on Tripadvisor.. Large bedroom and bath with large terraces off both. Bright, airy and very clean. The day of our arrival we had lunch at the Pousada. Our server "Clara" was an absolute delight and provided us with a lesson in the Portuguese language throughout our lunch. It was fantastically entertaining! No salads on the menu but "Clara" offered to have one made to accommodate me. Breakfast was OK (cereal, cheese, ham, bread, coffee) and quite frankly much better than the last Pousada we had stayed in. Service from all staff was absolutely excellent!
CONS: We found the food to be bland (this seems to be a Pousada theme) and overcooked. Also, our first evening there was a "foul" odor in our room, sufficiently bad enough that we asked reception what it was. We were told this is from a textile factory in the town and it just depends on the way the wind blows. We had to keep candles lit because the smell was overwhelming. Our second night was without this odor. Lastly, we were charged 9 Euros for "ice" that was needed when my spouse injured his knee....this charge was a total surprise and in our opinion should not have been charged......thus the 3 star rating.

We would like to apologize for the mistake made when launching the price of ice. Unfortunately it was not detected at checkout, if detected would have been canceled.

The pousada reopened in February of this year after extensive renovations to modernize it. The room was very comfortable facing the garden and with a magnificent unobstructed view as far as the eye could see. The pousada has a lovely restaurant with a view of the garden. The food (dinner and breakfast) was great and the service excellent. Reception staff speak English. I'm not sure about the rest of the staff since I spoke with them in Portuguese. There is free WiFi!
The town of Condeixa-A-Nova is very close to the city of Coimbra (about 15 minute drive) where there is a lot to see : museums, monuments, green spaces, and the University of Coimbra, the oldest university in Portugal and one of the oldest in the world founded in the 13th century.
The other worthwhile attraction in the area is Conimbriga, where one can walk around the vestiges of the oldest Roman settlement in Portugal.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet. We stayed in a handicap accessible room whose bathroom was equipped for handica...

We arrived having walked 33km. Everything about the Pousada was first class. On arrival the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our rooms and en-suites were spacious and spotless. Dinner was excellent and breakfast the same. This Pousada was the highlight accommodation of our trip.
